The Parkview Flex pilot program launched in the fall of 2018 with 14 students. Our Flex Program is the culmination of years of research, planning, and discussion. As one of the largest private schools in Louisiana, our faculty and staff are aware of the challenges that our education system is facing. Our current education models do not work for all students and families. We knew we needed to develop a new way to meet the needs of all students educationally.
Our Flex Program is built around a high quality online curriculum, one that our team believes is of the same rigor as our traditional program. The Flex Program is currently housed on the second floor of the Youth Building on Parkview Church Road and looks very different from the classrooms that we have used for over 35 years. Our Flex students do not have desks, but instead work in rooms that look and feel more like living rooms than classrooms. Flex students have a similar workload to our traditional program students, but they have control over which lessons, readings, and activities they do each day and the order in which they do their work. This allows students to have more ownership of their education and to develop a stronger independent work ethic.
Our academic coach is in the Flex studio each day monitoring student progress and arranging for subject area specialists as needed. Student progress is assessed through the online learning system and through traditional standardized testing including the ERB, ACT Aspire, ALEKS and Accelerated Reading.
Our Flex Program is highly customizable to meet the needs of each student and family. Flex students may also participate in sports, clubs, afterschool activities, enrichment classes, chapels, serve days and missions trips.
